With the increasing destruction of our natural
environment, and with the realization that we ultimately
depend upon this environment, my thesis explores
the role of Architecture in designing the built
environment to be harmonious with the natural one.
How can Architecture be a teaching tool for the natural
and built environments? Through the design of The
Sun School for Environmental studies involving the
integration of a building’s site, photovoltaic technology,
daylighting, and natural ventilation, how can
Architecture encourage a building to teach about
itself? How can a building respond to its occupants,
and to sun, wind, daylight and temperature? How can
Architecture encourage the occupants to interact with
the building, learn about it, respond to it, and
consequently to increase their awareness of it?
